The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has the rush of excitement of the courtroom but chooses melodrama over mystery.

Ace Attorney meets Sherlock Holmes turns out to be a great premise for a new game, with a subtle change in formula that works as both absurdist comedy and historical drama.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles as a unified duology really captures everything that draws players into this series in the first place. It’s got big reveals and turnabouts, clever use of examinations and deductions, and a cast littered with memorable, endearing characters. Naruhodo’s journey through the legal system of London is one that’s been a series highlight. It’s nice to finally have these games in the West, as both a great onboarding point for newcomers and a nice treat for Ace Attorney fans. No objections here.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has all the hallmarks of the Ace Attorney series, with excellent characters and brilliant writing through the remastered duology's ten cases, but there's some clever flourishes that make the story and gameplay far more interesting and enjoyable. The only objection we have is that it took far too long for these excellent Victorian adventures to reach the West!

A fresh visual novel, set in XIX century, which introduces new mechanics to the Ace Attorney Saga. It is not translated into spanish language, and requires some advanced level to understand some legal and historical terms.

With its strong cast of characters, complicated and compelling cases, and a good combination of new and classic elements in a good, lengthy prequel story, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is courtroom drama I couldn’t put down till I saw a mystery through to the end.

‎An exemplary remaster that includes two great graphic novels that make up an entire story arc. The best judgments of the video game scene return and they do it with two unpublished titles in our territory. The Great Ace Attroney Chronicles takes us to Victorian England to talk about crimes, corruption, legislation and many other topics dealt with through the prism of western romanticization that the anime performs from Japan. Being somewhat less redundant and more direct would have been wonderful and would have reduced the number of hours needed to complete it. Even so, if you are able to jump the language barrier, you will come up against a different video game full of humor and second readings.‎
